Flower Power, Texas Flag Quilt, and A Break

I've been working on a pattern I saw on Instagram and immediately loved. It is called Flower Power by Kelli Fannin and is available for purchase here. I am using a fat quarter bundle of Enchanted Pond that I purchased some time ago and this will become a lap-sized quilt for my sister-in-law! I put a 5-inch charm square in the photo so you can see how big the blocks are at 16-1/2 inches square. The blocks go together quickly, and I am really enjoying it!

I have set the Flower Power project aside to start work on a surprise for my husband - a Texas Flag Quilt or Lone Star Flag quilt. He is out of town until Thursday, Sept 28, and I have other plans all weekend, so I need to get it done quickly. The pattern is by Lisa at Things Here Lately, and it is available in PDF here. I spent the entire afternoon laying it out on the design board, and today I will start piecing. I love scrappy flag patterns, and I am excited about this one. I can't wait to see his face when he sees it across our new slate-blue bedspread!

I will be taking a little break from the blog. I know you're thinking "A break from what? She hardly ever posts!" Lol! I plan to be back soon with some Christmas projects.
